EA Black Box has said that it's out to "win game of the show" with Need For Speed: The Run, adding that it's "not going to be happy" if the game scores anything less than a 90 when it launches this November.
To win game of the show, I need to be impressed, I'm not impressed.
Racing game with quicktime cut scenes. Don't think so....
... then it just means the competition has failed big-time. It looked good, not great.
I think Battlefield will take that
especially the on foot quicktime events which were mostly just pressing A at the right time.
It was triangle, not "A".
Lose the quicktime events....
Car chases + on-foot quick time events. The Run didn't look bad, but there wasn't enough wow factor for it to get a GOTS nomination. And as far as a 90+ metascore, how about worrying about making a fun game rather than stressing over the critical reception? If all the running sections are on-rails with tons of QTEs, there's no way you're going to get that kind of score anyways.
Good luck with that
they are trying to do somethign new with the stale franchise so going to be open minded about it! but ill have to see more
. Nobody ( IMO ) is going to beat Far Cry 3 except maybe MW3...Sorry EA, saying it won't make it happen. Honorable mention goes to Tomb Raider that looked incredible as well. Of course still waiting for Nintendo today.
Battlefield 3 called, it would like a word
BF3 is the best thing I've seen so far. Really like the COD campaign footage and Far Cry came out of nowhere and really surprised me. Can you tell I'm an FPS :) Enjoy Need for Speed too, but racing games rarely get me quite so excited.
yeah bf3 & skyrim for sure!
it is nice to want things, even if you have a terrible reputation and keep trying like the little engine that could.. but QTEs are evil, DISQUALIFIED!
Skyrim... nuff said
I loved when the dragon picked up that dude and Geoff Keighley was like, WTF was that, that was awesome!
Ironically, it will be those on foot segments that they are counting on adding depth to the game that will kill their score the most. Who wants to watch canned segments where you press a button now and again? That's not interactive, that's just annoying.
"Do you know the definition of insanity?" Well, EA, do you? Because this is like what? The nine thousandth fucking Need for Speed.
